the cdc shows that just three states, california, hawaii, and mississippi are the only places where the flu is not widespread. every other state from alaska to florida is reporting the flu across more than half of their given state. dr. sanjay gupta has tips on recognizing that bug and how to get through it. >> randi, it's the worst flu season in years. we've been talking about it all week. emergency rooms in many places overflows. it's a fascinating story. here's what you need to know. >> the flu strikes fast and symptoms much more severe than a common cold. you feel fine one day and then the next a sudden fever, sore throat, headache, and tightness in the chest. >> over 200,000 people every year are hospitalized with influenza. and anywhere from 3,000 to 50,000 people will die each year. >> reporter: flu cases are at epidemic proportions now in some areas of the country. it's the most we've seen this time of year in a decade. >> they may get more complications from this particular h3n2 strain which may make them ill for a longer period of time. >> it typically surfaces earlier in
. and diane dursis. the owner of the only mississippi abortion clinic which is fighting to keep its doors open after restrictive abortion law passed. thank you both for joining me. congresswoman speier, it's a big day. big anniversary. big strides have been made. let's put this graphic up again. five states only have one abortion clinic left. it's a protected right. what's going on in these states though? >> well, there's been a systemic effort by the anti-choice community to go into the states and get laws passed to restrict access to abortion. last year and the year before were the worst two years in terms of the more restrictions that were placed on abortion opportunities for women. 135 laws were passed in over 30 states restricting a woman's right to choose. >> now, diane, when we talk about mississippi, we see that a lot of states and governors are really leading the charge. let me show you how some of the governors around the country are talking about women's right to choose and bors rights. watch this. >> to be clear, my goal and the goal of many of those joining me here today is to mak
. california, hawaii, and mississippi are the only ones that haven't yet reported widespread activity but they probably will. five states went down in terms of the level of activity but four states also went up. it's a bit of a wash, wolf. we know the flu season started earlier. it's likely to end a little bit earlier as a result but we just have to collect some more data over the next couple of weeks, wolf. >> and that's what we'll do. we keep hearing that everyone still needs to get a flu shot, that it's not too late. but we're also hearing potentially about shortages. here's the question. is there enough vaccine to go around? >> yes, i believe so. but there's a micro way of looking at this and a macro. you have a certain amount of vaccine that is made and then you've got to sort of predict where it's going to be needed and how to distribute it around the country. a lot of this is based on utilization, flu vaccines in years passed past. 128 million doses distributed and 112 million vaccinated. those are actually pretty good numbers in terms of those that have been vaccinated. if you
, southwest into mississippi. forecasters are also warning of severe flash floods. meteorologist janice dean is live from the our fox news weather center. southwest mississippi is what i should have said, right, jd? >> louisiana, mississippi, alabama all the way up the mississippi river, jon scott. tornado warnings, we've had several warnings throughout the morning and we have a tornado watch. that is good until 2:00 p.m. local time for portions of louisiana into mississippi. tornado watch meaning conditions are favorable for tornados and right there we have a tornado warning east of homa we're spotting strong rotation on doppler radar. earlier today we had a trained weather spotter indicate a tornado was on the ground around baton rouge. this is a very dangerous situation. also because we have so much heavy rainfall these tornados can be rain wrapped so you can't see them coming. the other part of this because we have so much heavy rain flash flood watches and warnings for much of portions of mississippi river valley along louisiana up towards the mississippi where you see the maroon shaded
at that, look at mississippi congressman steve palaso. he pushed for storm relief in his area after hurricane katrina and isaac. he voted no for sandy relief because quote, we have a financial disaster looming in the country that i believe personally in my heart is going to be greater than any natural disaster that has ever hit us. now, today the paper ripped into palazzo. his hometown paper. for his vote against sandy relief. quote, seldom has a single vote in congress appeared as cold-blooded and hard headed as the one cast by representative steven palazzo last week. that he would rather make a philosophical point rather than help put back together communities. as he himself once put it is both shameful and offensive. this is an example of this kind of tea party ideology that just seems that people are not as important as the ideology even when they didn't feel that way under different circumstances, jackie. >> again, like we talked about the divide in the republican party, we saw a lot of east coast -- the republicans whose districts were effected by that really get very upset ab
spots. like oxford, mississippi or normandy or iwo jima. >> i was going to say time and again when presidents have come here, when they've cited heroes, they've been military heroes. to talk about seneca falls and selma is more about an inclusive america with an emphasis on the quality of opportunity. not upon liberty. a republican would have traditionally given a speech about liberty. >> stonewall was the group of people most marginalized in society and the most shunned who weren't even allowed to congregate in a bar at the same time without getting harassed and arrested. >> stonewall from 1969 has been considered almost alternate left history for a while. now gay studies has come into the fold. here the president of the united states on martin luther king day is giving it that much time. >> vice president biden is speaking at the commander-in-chief ball. >> they know who you are. they know what you've done. 1.7, 1.7 million of you have walked across the scorching sands of iraq or been in those god for saken mountains and plains of afghanistan. many of you just haven't served one

almost 90% in both alabama and mississippi. similarly in this cycle, romney won the presidency of the confederate states of america, a caring nine of the 11 rebel states. he achieved his high share of the white vote in the state with the largest percentage of black voters, mississippi. indeed, romney's strong national showing among white voters was almost exclusively driven by a stark support from southern voters. george w. bush got 62 million votes in the 2004 election and conservatives said he had a mandate. barack obama got 62 million votes in the two -- 2012 election, and conservatives started a secessionist movement. but the obama campaign took it to them and made a difference in the end. they helped create a new electorate, a coalition of concerned and they turned it out on election day. our two political parties are separate and not equal. the percentage of republicans who are white has remained fairly steady since 2000 at about 87%. the percentage of democrats who are white in contrast has dropped from 64% in 2000 to 55% now. independents have gone from 79% to 67% white
